Flycka is a web site enabling users cooperatively to create dynamic web content. It’s a cross between a social network, a web site builder and a hosting service.
When my RACHEL arrives next week, I’ll move Flycka to it, so someone connected to the RACHEL can create web pages that someone else connected to the RACHEL can view. I’ll also use the RACHEL in a special education class for students with emotional disorders.
When a user has created web pages using Flycka on RACHEL, I can extract this content from the mysql database and transfer it to my server on the internet. The content then is available to anyone online.
So here’s the idea. I’ll make Flycka available as a module on RACHEL, so remote users can create web pages (blogs and the like) available to other people using the same RACHEL. This application seems possible within WP’s standard protocol.
I’d also like RACHEL automatically to push the web pages to the server hosting flycka.com, so when a RACHEL owner updates their device, web pages created by RACHEL users locally become available on the internet.
I’d like an update of the module to update the module’s mysql tables without disturbing content already in the tables. Presumably, an update of KA-Lite doesn’t erase the module’s history, so this operation may already be possible?
Ultimately, someone in a remote village in Ghana may write their blog on a RACHEL, and after an update of their RACHEL, anyone on the internet may read the blog at flycka.com. If someone else in a remote village in Burma subsequently updates their RACHEL, users of their RACHEL can also read the blog written in Ghana.
The idea is a social network comprised of RACHEL users. Members of this network are like pen pals in the days before the internet, but they communicate through blogs published to the internet intermittently and subsequently to other RACHEL devices. Can we make it happen?
